Take a deep breath, Minnesota Wild fans...
According to a report from NHL insider Frank Seravalli, reigning Calder Trophy winner Kirill Kaprizov has come to terms on a one year deal with CSKA Moscow of the KHL. Now, it's important to note that the two sides do not have an official contract in place, but Kaprizov has the option to sign with CSKA Moscow if he can't come to terms with Wild GM Bill Guerin.
More from Seravalli:
There's just one problem... fellow NHL insider Andy Strickland reports that the proposed deal with CSKA Moscow is bogus.

Whatever the truth is... if I'm a Wild fan Seravalli's report makes me INCREDIBLY nervous. Here's a franchise that has been desperate for a gamebreaker ever since Marian Gaborik left town and Kaprizov has all the makings of being that gamebreaker. More than that though, what he showed in his first year as an NHL player has people calling him the best player in Wild history. If they lose him after just one season it would be absolutely devastating.
